Q – What’s the best way to light a bath
or powder room?
A – Most of us want to see a clear reflection in our bathroom or powder room mirrors so we can apply makeup properly or shave without cutting ourselves or simply brush our teeth correctly. To avoid shadows, and to fully surround your face with flattering light, install a fixture at least 24” wide over the mirror, plus two wall sconces (one on each side of the mirror) at least 28” apart and 60” above the floor. The Kichler Lights “Beauty Wraps™” can do this by using only one electrical outlet. They allow matching mini pendants to surround the mirror while also providing light from above. If you have a double sink vanity, use a light that is almost as wide as the mirror. The light should be mounted 78” from the floor, centered over the mirror.
Q – What if I have a truly large
A – Besides the vanity/mirror lighting, you will probably need an additional flushmount or semi flush fixture with possible recess lighting in shower areas. A Kichler Chandelette® could provide more light while adding a touch of décor to the room.
